    Shoe blacks

    by solopes Updated Jun 18, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I must confess my surprise by the image of shoe blacks in Turkey.

    This occupation, fading in the west, gets in Turkey an interesting look, by the decoration of their working boxes.

    Too big to a comfortable transportation, they are, however, a true piece of art.

    We all were using slippers - bad to business...

    While the Spanish have bullfights, the Turks have camel wrestling!! It is famous in the Aegean region. You can only watch it on January or February.

    Men mostly go there to drink raki while watching it hehe....

    Mohammed and fashion-show

    I want to tell a few words about our guide Mohammed here. First of all we were surprised with his perfect Russian! Sometimes when I didn’t see him and only listened to his talking I thought he was almost Russian with very slight Caucasian accent…

    The second – he knew the subject of this tour “By paths of Ancient Civilizations” rather well and we were very grateful to him for his professionalism.

    The third – he was very artistic and felt at ease at every moment with us: during excursions, at the restaurant in dancing and in the Populer Leather Market as a fashion-show man!
    May be he will see these my pages one day and I want to tell him thanks and wish all the best in his difficult but very interesting work!

    Saturday Market

    Every Saturday, the town fills up with merchants selling everything from antiques to teapots to figs and apples. This is when the locals come out of their homes to shop and mingle. Try to be there!
